Article title

Cultural identity of New Caledonia on the example of inhabitants of the Isle of Pines

Title variants
Languages of publication
Cultural identity of the inhabitants of New Caledonia is at the stage of deeper and deeper absorption of Western culture patterns, while striving at the same time to preserve traditional cultural learning that is based on mythical thinking. Traditional perception of the world, and the resulting types of activities, gives way to modern professions connected with tourism services and the use of advanced technologies.
